Support oembed for YouTube Shorts

YouTube is automatically converting at least some videos under 60 seconds to their new Shorts product, which includes a new URL structure (e.g. https://www.youtube.com/shorts/HGgKlO8R0pA) which Composer does not recognize the oembed data from.

Changing the URL from above to the original form/current form for longer videos https://www.youtube.com/watch/?v=/HGgKlO8R0pA is a workaround for now. But it would be nice to support YouTube's new native URL structure.

    Thank you for this submission and alerting us to this updated oembed type from YouTube. I've added this to our product backlog for future updating.
